Fear of the darkness

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 17:28 -- ArpitaL

That dark slowly consumes me

It’s like inching closer to infinity

Is this what it’s like to not be able to see?

Don’t touch me

Or come near me

I’m afraid to breathe

But don’t leave me

Can you even hear me?

It’s like I’m six feet under the sea

All I wanted was to be set free

But now I'm stuck in here

I tried looking for a way out

I swear I tried

Now all I can do is hide

Promise me you’ll come back for me

Tell me you’ll help me out

I'm desperate to get out of here

I’m afraid of the darkness

I'm afraid of my thoughts

And most of all I’m afraid of you, my reflection
